Answer : (A) Longitudinal
Explanation :
In solids particles are relatively closer to each other, thereby the forces that they interact with their neighbors are way too larger than those in  gases.
 The inter particle interaction in gases is the least. . . even smaller than that in liquids
For transverse waves to travel through a medium, the inter atomic/interparticle forces should be stronger.
